Wolli Creek Walk
The Wolli Creek Walk centres around Girrahween Park. Some of the attactions of the park include picnic, barbeque and play facilities, a pond, lookouts with extensive views over the valley and ample native flora and fauna. From Girrahween Park a well defined bushtrack heads east through forest, heathland, past sandstone rock faces and down to the base of 'Nanny Goat Hill'. Wetland areas rich in birdlife lie to the south of the track which continues on to Turrella Reserve. This walk is approximately 2 kilometres long and will take about 1 hour.
Please note that although this is a most enjoyable walk, it is difficult and strenuous in places. It is recommended that appropriate footwear is worn, and that inexperienced bushwalkers limit themselves to the developed parts of Girrahween Park.
Due to the difficult nature of sections of the Wolli Creek track, it is recommended that fit and experienced walkers only attempt these. A good map is available from the Wolli Creek Preservation Society Web site at http://www.wollicreek.org.au/walk/walk.html.
How to get there:
Catch a train to Bardwell Park Station. If you decide to drive to Girrahween Park, there is ample street parking and a small carpark
